In an era where the fashion industry grapples with the challenge of fast fashion and its impact on the environment, one brand stands out in its commitment to marrying luxury with sustainability: WILLIQUE.
The luxury “slow-fashion” leather goods brand founded by Anya Willique is set to make a significant appearance at the Caribbean Investment Forum 2023 at Atlantis Nassau, Bahamas this week. This unique opportunity is brought forth by Invest TCI, the islands’ investment promotion agency.
“In a world drowning in fast fashion, we’re seeing a disconnect between luxury and sustainability, leaving a footprint that our planet and our souls cannot afford,” said owner and designer Anya Pratt. The brand, known for its dedication to sustainable and ethical practices, has been pioneering the slow fashion movement, particularly in the Caribbean.
“At WILLIQUE, we’re rewriting that narrative. Melding my Caribbean heritage with eco-conscious craftsmanship, every handbag we create is a testament to sustainable luxury, a beacon of eco-lifestyle, and a step towards a greener, more thoughtful fashion future,” Pratt
Showcasing a curated selection of bespoke leather goods, WILLIQUE aims to demonstrate that luxury and sustainability are not mutually exclusive but can coexist harmoniously. With a focus on durability, longevity, and environmentally-friendly practices, the brand offers an alternative to mass-produced items, emphasizing quality over quantity.
Invest TCI’s decision to feature WILLIQUE at the Caribbean Investment Forum 2023 underscores the agency’s commitment to sustainable and eco-friendly business initiatives. The forum serves as a platform for brands and businesses making a difference in the Caribbean and
WILLIQUE’s CIF exhibit promises to be a convergence of innovation, sustainability, and luxury, providing attendees a glimpse into the future of fashion – one that is eco-conscious and deeply rooted in Caribbean heritage.
